Why not a blessing in disguise?

There’re all sorts of ranting and raving about the undie-bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, not being on the “short” list (is there a pun there?) of those not allowed to fly in U.S. airspace; and there are others who are a bit more sanguine.

Mightn’t one accurately think, Dear Gentle Reader(s), that the fact Mr. Abdulmutallab did not make a short list is a stroke of good luck for Homeland Security as well as the good folk who do the airport screening?

With the inept, thankfully, attempt of Mr. A, we now have increased knowledge of bomb delivery capabilities and techniques, and, as with the “shoe” bomber of a few years back, we are somewhat more alert, if not actually safer, in the skies.

We’d all, to be sure, prefer not to have to worry about religious dimwits trying to gain entrance to some strange idea of Paradise (What, exactly are those 72 virgins supposed to do to make Paradise so special for these guys?) with the shedding of others’ blood, but if we have do worry about it, let’s have as much info into their thinking as possible.

Thank you, Mr. Abdulmuttallab for your failure.  It was a blessing for us.

Trust, but verify, transportation workers.

(And get on the stick, CAIR; encourage more moderate mullahs to condemn these killings and attempted killings.)
